    Re: Server names

    of the non-boring names:
    Jeff
    Bunyip
    Hoopsnake
    Sputnik
    .... whatever we feel like calling the next server.

    but mostly their true names are hidden, with cnames to services provided, so proxy goes to hoopsnake, patchserver goes to bunyip.

    We were tempted to use Dictators as our naming convention, but thought the head might get upset to discover his files were held on PolPot.

    Re: Server names

    At school, dull (initials of the school)SRV01, 02, 03 etc.

    Although one is called surfcontrol (wonder what that does)


    At home I used to use Lord of the Rings characters, but I use Toy Story characters now, Woody, Buzz, Rex

    I'm looking forward to my kids being older and having PC's so I can use MrPotato

    Re: Server names

    Further to the list of precious and semi-precious metals ... we now have Zirconium as our VMWare box ... which hosts Scandium (hosting ePO and a few other applications), Curium (emergency DC in case everything goes down), Hassium (test Sharepoint 2007 server), Tantalum (WAMP for trying things with Moodle and Joomla), and Yttrium (Vista machine to allow us to play with Vista based policies within the domain).

    We have also added a few Terminal Servers ... boringly called TS01, TS02, etc ... and the sun kit is SGD1 and SGD2 ...

    Support workstations include copper, nickel, tungsten, zinc ... and mine is hydrogen.

    Re: Server names

    I used to work for a company called Saturn, and the servers were named after some of Saturn's moons (Pan, Pheobe, Titan, Hyperion, Atlas, Pandora, etc)

    Re: Server names

    We use S1, S2, S3, S4, NAS1, NAS2 etc. The TS and MIS are still called DST-TS/MIS-001 from the old CC3 network as the old network manager was too lazy to change them. The other boxes are named after things that are suitable i.e. our Proxy is called the GUARDIAN.
